SkyLife Lounge

Take it easy before your flight

Start your journey in real style at our smart and sophisticated SkyLife Lounge – open all day, every day at London Southend Airport. It’s open to everyone, no matter which airline you’re flying with or where you’ll be sitting in the plane. Best of all, if you book in advance or park with us, it’s even better value.

Live the high life

To check your emails, make a few calls, catch-up on the news or simply kick-back with a glass of wine, our SkyLife Lounge will ensure your journey gets off to a smooth and comfortable start, a world away from the bustle of the departure lounge.

Eating, drinking, connecting... and recharging

Delicious food and drink is included at SkyLife, with champagne and prosecco also available to buy. Choose from freshly prepared Danish pastries and croissants at breakfast, with sandwiches, snacks and treats throughout the day. You’ll also be able to enjoy complimentary premium wines, beers, spirits, soft drinks, teas and Nespresso coffees.

The lounge is divided into zones, with separate places to work, watch a bit of telly, read the papers... or quietly nod off. With free wifi, you’ll never miss an email again. And you’ll also find plenty of charging points for everything from mobiles to laptops and games consoles – so you can always stay powered-up and connected.
